Eiffel Tower

Built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World Fair — held to commemorate the centennial of the Revolution — the Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel) made headlines at the time as the world's tallest structure at 1,050 feet (320 meters). Initially opposed by Paris' artistic and literary elite, the tower was almost torn down in 1909, but salvation came when it proved an ideal platform for the antennas needed for the new science of radiotelegraphy.

Today, the highlight of a visit to the Eiffel Tower is its views, both from the ground and out over Paris from high in the tower. Start at the base of the tower and peer upward through the girders to see the inner workings and complex architecture. Then, head up to the three levels open to the public for an unrivaled glimpse of Paris’ skyline and a visit to the famed 58 Tour Eiffel Restaurant, located on the first level.

Just southeast of the Eiffel Tower is a grassy expanse that served as the site of the world's first balloon flights. Today, the area is frequented by skateboarding teens and activists stating their views on the current state of France.

Practical Info

Take metro line 6 to stop Bir Hakeim or RER line C to the Champ de Mars station, which will drop you off closest to the Eiffel Tower. For better views, get off across the river Seine at stop Trocadero, accessible by metro lines 6 and 9. Elevators stop at each level of the Eiffel Tower (pricing depends on how high you go), but there are often long queues, so opt for a skip-the-line ticket.
